THE DANGEROUS DAYS OF DANIEL X—James Patterson & Michael Ledwidge—Patterson fans are not pleased with this incredibly rapid read, one created for the teen and perhaps pre-teen set. Approached with an open mind, though, it’s quick and fun with a ‘quick witted’ teenage boy as hero and his mission, as an alien, is to destroy aliens on Earth who (which?) are interested in destroying Earth.. Some wonderful values are touched on, even a plug for libraries, as our hero fights for his life with the totally evil #6. A quick check of gives a clue to the reason for this and the books in the series to follow; to engage younger readers in reading, using topics that interest them to lure them into the pleasure of the written word. It’s not the James Patterson of the Alex Cross series or many other things, however the authors extend their writing skills through a different genre.
